In recognition of DDS’ importance as an example of digital heritage, the Reconstructing The Digital City project has been set up with the aim of recovering and reconstructing as much of this internet-historical monument as is possible. In doing so, it is hoped that DDS will be afforded a place in the history of Amsterdam and Dutch internet culture as it deserves, but also to highlight the precarious state of digital heritage during a time of radically shortening technological life-cycles.
In addition to discussing the specificities of the project, Tjarda de Haan will provide an overview of theories and methods of web archaeology, touching amongst other things on the creation of strategies, discovery and development of tools, data collection and analysis, and the position of such materials within heritage archives.
Open to all students and interested parties and we look forward to seeing you there!
At the University of Amsterdam, Oudemanhuispoort room C.223.
